The Manaslu area is the area where mostly Gurung live. Buddhist and Tibetan influences are more in the Tsum Valley.
The nature in this region is spectacular , from forested hills to barren mountain slopes and impressive snow peaks.
The area is not very touristy and the facilities are therefore minimal. Trekkers should not expect luxury . You might need to sleep in home stays or monasteries when lodges are not available.
Bedrooms might be shared if needed and meals featuring local dishes.
